COACHING SERIES: INTERVIEW WITH ASC BARCELONA TRAVELING COACH, ALVARO PINO
This week I want to share a story about a special person on the Sanchez-Casal team, Alvaro Pino. Alvaro is the son of Antonio Pino, a former tennis player, and coach who has worked with us since the Academy was founded in Barcelona.
There is so much I can say about Alvaro, but quite honestly, his loyalty speaks for itself. I have watched Alvaro transition from being a student to a player, to finally becoming a coach at Sanchez-Casal. Alvaro helped open the facility in Naples, Florida and today he is one of the most successful traveling coaches on the ASC Barcelona team.
Alvaro has demonstrated his passion for tennis and coaching in everything he does. He lives, eats and breathes ASC. When he went with me to Mexico earlier this year, I watched him grow not only a coach but also as a person. He delivered great lectures and told stories from the heart. That’s when I realized that the opportunity he earned at ASC was really happening and that our mission was working. Nothing makes me prouder and happier than seeing a coach that inspires others. Having coaches like this will help us keep growing and delivering a special energy that encourages ASC players to maximize their performance.
I’m glad to introduce Alvaro to you; a special ASC traveling coach and an even better person.
